    I just got mine in the mail. Any issues that I should be looking forward to?

    (saves, slowdown, etc.)

    GBA homebrew that uses the SRAM (goomba and the like) will likely need the header altering:

    Slowdown, much like most carts slowdown (at least as far as the DS commerical side of things is concerned) ?SD dependent so Portrait of Ruin may crash (although there are patches and options for you to take: large clusters, sound patching). Otherwise it should be fine if you have a good cart (search for any of the 40000....0000..0000 threads on the subject for more).

    Saves, use the latest patches and all should be good. GBA wise only the major stuff like classic nes (use an emulator) and boktai (solar patch needed as well as the usual trouble roms (I am afraid you will have to search for these)
    Tools you may want:
